To Kill A Man In A Painful Way Poem by Jayl Morris

To Kill A Man In A Painful Way



Toss your hair onto your shoulder
lower your head slightly and
look to the left.
Smile slightly with a sly glance.

Touch gently with warmth,
stroke the brow with genuine care
hold him tight in a close
and endless embrace.

Laugh twice at all the jokes
Wrestle if he's a mind to play
Tickle him near to tears
tell him that you love him.

When standing before the God
you had swore you knew
asked if your love forever you
smile sweetly saying 'yes, I do'.

Bide your time quietly
and bear the man a son
allow him to believe
he is in heaven.

Then, when he is overseas
in service country of,
begin dating other men
give to them your love.

As he fights for your freedoms afar
you make your body free for all
your lovers play with your husbands son
no remorse over what you've done.

Upon his return, before he leaves again
you tell him you have changed your mind
no longer his wife you'll be
and send him thus back to sea.

The courts will give you his son to care
an upstart lover will claim him as his own
vanishing into the bayous
and not a sorrow for what you've done.

It would of been more humane to kill (the man)
right from the very start
to find the largest butcher knife
and stab him in the heart.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This is a simplified story of what happened to me when I married a woman as young as I. My pain and grief and every other feeling, went completely and utterly without regard. These events early in my adulthood, were the most painful and agonizing of my life. They very nearly cost me my life. To this day I truly wish she had just stabbed me in my sleep. It would have been more merciful. She seems that heartless to me. My most fervent prayers go to those who are overseas fighting for their country whose faithless and vulnerable wives are back in the comfort of home committing adultery with no sense of guilt at all.
